Gunny's real life father (Bill Mumy) was one of the neighbors in this film. See more »
In one scene Gunny watches King Kong (1933) and is terrified by a scene in which Kong munches on one of the natives. That scene was deleted from the original theatrical release and not restored until the 1970s (Three Wishes takes place in 1955). See more »
Just watched this movie in TV. Although it had a slow pace and some of
characters were not fully developed, I liked it. Especially appealing to
me, as a senior, was the locale and the truly accurate portrayal of life
times in the late 1950's. Even the kitchen appliances and the dish ware
were spot on! I lived in a tract just like the one in the film - the San
Fernando Valley urban explosion!
I thought the players were all fine and the child actors were very
effective. The story dragged a bit but pacing is not everything -
it is good to linger a bit and be nostalgic. This is a good movie for
thoughtful teens who can appreciate the message given about home, hope
